Carmella applies a headlock, then a headscissors takedown, followed by a clothesline. Emma pulls the hair of Carmella, slamming her to the mat before applying a body scissors. Carmella fights back and hits a series of shoulderblocks before booting Emma in the head. Emma ends up applying the Emma Lock and Carmella has to tap.

Dillinger takes control early with strikes and mocks Breeze before a couple of 2 counts. Dillinger body slams Breeze to the mat, which draws “10” chants from the crowd. Breeze hits a neckbreaker and a hurricanrana, however. The Beauty Shot finishes it off.
Winner: Tyler Breeze via pinfall (Beauty Mark)

Samoa Joe & Finn Balor vs. Rhyno & Kevin Owens
Joe attacks Rhyno early and tags to Balor, who dropkicks Rhyno. Unfortunately for Balor, he’s driven back first into the corner where Owens beats him down. Rhino continues the assault as we go to our final commercial break.
We come back to see Rhyno hit a great delayed vertical suplex on Balor, where he squats several times while doing it. Owens is tagged in and applies a headlock, which gets “headlock city” chants. A five knuckle shuffle connects, but Balor busts out of an AA attempt to tag Joe.
Joe and Rhyno are in, and Joe dominates until Owens distracts, allowing Rhyno to hit a spinebuster. Owens tags in, eats an uranage, but Owens hits him with a pop up powerbomb. Balro answers with a Pele kick, and Rhyno accidentally Gores Owens. Balor with the Coup de Grace for the win.
Winner: Finn Balor & Samoa Joe via pinfall (Coup de Grace)
